I want to change the masthead.par by downloading the file to NWDS and Redeploy it to Portal.

Do any one has the documentation or links for doing this like changing the XML file and etc.

How to guide or any documentation for any par file is ok for me.

Thank You,

Hi Murali,

For customizing the masterhead you need to change the respective JSPs in the par file, add the required jar files ( as told by geogi) -> deploy it into portal -> create an iview out of par -> add the iview to the framework page which u have created.

For more documents and information regarding this topic refer the thread

hope this helps,

Hi Murali

Open the portal prespective in NWDS.Import the par file by file@import@par.

Open the Dist@PORTAL-INF folder. You can see the JSP folder and inside this you can make changes.

For each component you create component name,config and profile will be there in the portalapp.xml. You can do this easily from Components tab in portalapp.xml.Add the securityZone and change it to high_safety if you are not able to create the iview after uploading.In the component profile you can set the properties for the iviews.

Use this link for editing portalapp.xml and follow the steps described


Make sure that the jar files are added(masterheadcore &masterheadapi.jar)before deploying to server.
